Overview

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy s acclaimed first screenplay, the basis for an Emmy-nominated film a taut, riveting intergenerational drama of fathers and sons, power, inequality, rage, and violence set in post-Civil War South Carolina.

Set in Graniteville, South Carolina, The Gardener s Son is a tale of privilege and hardship, animosity and vengeance brought to life through two families: the Greggs, the wealthy owners of a cotton mill, and their employees the McEvoys, a father and son beset by misfortune. After Robert McEvoy loses his leg in an accident rumored to have been caused by his nemesis James Gregg, the son of the mill s founder the angry and bitter young man deserts his job and family.

Two years later, Robert returns. His mother is dying, and his father, the mill s gardener, is confined indoors working the factory line. These intertwined events stoke the slow burning rage McEvoy has long carried, a fury that erupts in a terrible act of violence that ultimately consumes the Gregg family and his own.

Made into an acclaimed film broadcast on PBS in 1976, The Gardener s Son received two Emmy Award nominations and was screened at the Berlin and Edinburgh Film Festivals."
